Appearance of depressive episodes during last 12 month among school-age (11, 13, 15 y. o.) children.
Age groups are formed on the basis of forms 5, 7 and 9. The majority of students of these forms are 11...12, 13...14 or 15...16 years old. However, the research must also include the students who are repeating the year. As a prerequisite, 90% of the students must be of ±6 months the mean age of their age group, the remaining 10% must not be over the mean age of more than 12 months. The specification into age groups of 11, 13 and 15 years is in a way conditional because the cleaned files include also 12, 14 and 16 year old students in a certain amount.
The 15 counties are grouped into five administrative regions:
Rapla and Harju Counties together with the City of Tallinn
Eastern and the Western Viru Counties
Tartu, Pőlva, Valga and Vőru Counties
Järva, Viljandi and Pärnu Counties
Lääne, Hiiu and Saare Counties.
Disaggregated by: academic year, depression, region
Note: 2005/2006 academic year data is weighted. 2009/2010 academic year data is unweighted, but is representative.
